A 20-year-old student of School of the Nations was on Friday sentenced to three years imprisonment and fined $30,000 by City Magistrate Leron Daly for being in possession of eight ecstasy pills.

John Adams pleaded guilty to the charge which stated that on February 20, 2019, at Princes Street, he had eight ecstasy pills amounting to five grams.

Police Prosecutor Christopher Morriss said that on the day in question at about 21:00hrs, police intercepted Adams while he was riding along Princes Street on his motorcycle.

Why destroy a young life for such a trivial act? Why was this young man stopped and searched? The practice of targeting of young black men by the Guyana Police Force must be ended now!!!
